You know when you make a dish, and you think this could be awesome, and it turns out even better than you had hoped?? That's this. These are to die.
I made these Sunday night after Kris and I had a long day of tree-getting and decorating. From start to finish, this took about 20 minutes MAYBE. It was heavenly. Enchiladas without all the rolling and baking. I kept thinking... don't I have to do more? Isn't there another step? Nope. Ready to go, just like that.
I used the last of my Thanksgiving turkey leftovers in this and stretched it with a can of white beans. Beans get a bad rap, but honestly they can be your best friend when you need to stretch a meal. The addition of beans gives more texture to this recipe and it's even more satisfying than if I'd only used meat. From a nutrition standpoint (gotta go there, it's my job.. literally) they provide fiber, protein and many other nutrients. Plus, yea, they're cheap. Win-win.
I can't say enough good stuff about this recipe. Honestly, just give it a try and you'll understand. The only thing I'd say is that I wish I'd had cilantro to sprinkle on top with everything else. Next time I will. Yes, there will be a next time.
Now, excuse me while I eat some leftover yumminess.
Skillet Enchiladas Suizas
12 corn tortillas
1 tablespoon oil
1 16 ounce jar salsa verde
1 cup light sour cream
can of beans (white beans are preferable)
roughly 1-2 cups shredded cooked turkey or chicken*
1 -2 cups shredded Swiss cheese
1/2 bunch green onion, chopped
Toppings: queso fresco, green onion, cilantro, etc.
Cut tortillas into large pieces. Heat oil in skillet over medium-high heat. Add tortilla pieces to pan and cook until lightly browned. Remove from pan and set aside. Add meat and beans and heat through. Add salsa, about 1/3 cup or so of the green onion and sour cream. Stir to combine. Add cheese and tortillas and fold all together. Once cheese is melted and everything is well mixed, serve hot. Top with crumbled queso, extra green onion, whatever you like.
*if you don't have the meat, 1 pound of ground turkey would be great. Just brown in the pan after the tortillas and proceed with the recipe
